Art Nouveau-Art Deco Style flower charms
These are fresh from the kiln. Lovely patina on them isn't it? A bit of charcoal stuck in the crevices here and there. I'll clean that out and throw them into the tumbler. The bronze clay shrinks by approximately 30% so the charms are much smaller than the mold I made and used. They're under .5 inches.
I've been thinking about where they will fit - Art Nouveau or Art Deco? While the flowers have the "whiplash" stem they're also stylized a bit. But I do think they're more Art Nouveau than Art Deco because they're not as modern in overall style.
What do you think? Which are they more like? Art Nouveau or Art Deco?
